Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Effective in relief of injured Eduardo Rodriguez
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes pitched 2.1 innings Tuesday in Baltimore after starter Eduardo Rodriguez exited early with a hamstring injury. He gave up two runs on one hit and one walk with two strikeouts, but came away with no decision when the rest of the Red Sox bullpen blew their 3-0 lead in the seventh inning.

Barnes left two inherited runners on first and second when he departed with one out in the seventh, and Fernando Abad turned those into the two runs on his ledger by allowing both to cross home plate on a Matt Wieters single. The 26-year-old would've likely been in line for his fourth win after picking up right where Rodriguez left off.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Ineffective in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes, one day after picking up the first save of his career, was tagged for three runs on three hits in a third of an inning in Wednesday night's 9-4 loss to the Yankees.

Barnes was the first of a string of relievers that served up eight runs on eight hits over the course of the seventh and eighth innings Wednesday, delivering another gut-punching loss to Boston. Barnes has done a lot of good out of the pen this season for Boston, but there are times when his high-90s fastball doesn't waver. When that happens, major league hitters can make him pay.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Shuts door for ailing Kimbrel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes entered a 5-3 game against the Yankees with two outs in the ninth and struck out the final hitter to earn his first save of the season.

Regular closer Craig Kimbrel had been pitching the ninth but was surprisingly ineffective, recording just two outs on 37 pitches and walking in a run before being removed in favor of Barnes. After the game it turned out that Kimbrel was dealing with knee soreness in the same knee that landed him on the DL earlier this summer. Brad Ziegler would seem to be the replacement closer should Kimbrel miss time, but Barnes has been solid this season, with a 2.98 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Pitching hero in 18-run game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Barnes tossed three scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out two in Wednesday night's 11-7 win over the Giants.

The Red Sox were on the verge of blowing an eight-run lead when Barnes entered in the sixth inning with the bases loaded, no outs, and Boston clinging to an 8-7 lead. He got a double-play grounder and foul out to extricate the Red Sox from that jam, then held the Giants at bay the next two innings. The outing continues a nice stretch for the right-hander, who has a 1.56 ERA with a 17:2 K:BB over his last 12 appearances, spanning 17.1 innings. As the Red Sox cope with injuries in the bullpen, Barnes has earned the confidence and trust of manager John Farrell. He may not get any save opportunities while Craig Kimbrel (knee) and Koji Uehara (pectoral muscle) are out -- Brad Ziegler is the primary closer while they rehab -- but Barnes has earned a chance to pitch in high-leverage situations.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Third straight scoreless outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Barnes pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Boston's 4-1 win over the Rays on Saturday. He's made three straight scoreless appearances.

Red Sox manager John Farrell will have to rely on Barnes as he attempts to manage the turbulence in a bullpen that's been hit with injuries to Junichi Tazawa (shoulder) and Craig Kimbrel (knee). Farrell has recently shown more faith in Barnes, who has whittled his ERA from 3.64 to 2.93 over the last 10 appearances (14 strikeouts, two walks, 12.1 innings). He may be able steal a save opportunity during the time Kimbrel is on the DL (3-to-6 weeks), but the Red Sox will settle for keeping Barnes' walks down and providing stability in a setup role.
